The College of Optical Sciences at University of Arizona has established excellent programs for training BS, MS, and
Ph.D. students in optical sciences and engineering. Research activities at the University of Arizona have also been
closely coupled to developments in the field of optomechanical engineering. In response to request from the optics
industry, we have recently expanded the educational opportunities for BS and MS students to follow engineering
curricula that provide the right mix of optics and mechanical engineering.
